QuickOffice Pro HD Now Ready for Curtain with PowerPoint Editor

image

PowerPoint is the perfect application for an iPad. Graphical in orientation with messages simplified to the point of contention and very photographic in its organization. But Microsoft's ambivalence toward the platform meant it was left to third parties to create the PowerPoint experience for the iPad.  With version 4.5 of Quickoffice Pro HD, Quickoffice users can now edit native PowerPoint files. Well, sort of.

image

Considering how many apps are available in the Apple app store, not to mention how many are actually on my iPhone (close to 300), it's a bit daunting of a task to come up with only 10 apps to recommend here and now! There are simply so many amazing and award-winning apps out there and each is suited to an individual uniquely.



What I played this week - Fibble and SugarSync!

image

Fibble HD is a 3D physics/puzzle game that is a beauty to behold on the iPad, but before I give my review, I have to do a mini-review of the awesomely redesigned SugarSync (which is not a game--sorry about that). The old version of SS (a cloud file syncing app--reviewed here), was not well suited to iPad, but the coders have fixed that in their recent upgrade! So before I tell you how great Fibble is, I want to tell you how great SugarSync has become...

I like to Mindmap. I organize my life, my writing and my projects with mindmaps. And ThinkBuzan, the software arm of mindmap inventor Tony Buzan, has just released what may be the ultimate experience for mind mappers: iMindMap Freedom.

image

You are no longer bound by saved files on your computer.  Because technology has changed; there are now apps available that allow you to access all of your stored files right from your phone or tablet.  This is why iExplorer HD was created.  It has given people the power to access many different attachments from an alternate location as long as you are connected with the right servers.



Call My Name App Review

The call my name app is a great new way to not only organize your contacts so they are easy to find and use, but also find the phone number of just about anyone or any business you want.  First, when you open up the app it will have all your contacts from your phone all loaded in and easy to find.  You can use the built in search function to quickly find people by their first name or last name, which makes it a lot easier than just scrolling through like you have to on the normal phone list.



iPads in the Classroom

I've never worked on a Mac. I don't even own an iPhone. But one night four months ago, I borrowed an iPad from our Technology Department to see what all the fuss was about. As a baseball coach and sponsor of our school's broadcasting club, I thought the iPad might be useful for video analysis and editing. And it is. What I never expected was to find so many practical functions for my classroom. The iPad has changed the way I teach high school English, and there’s a pretty good chance it can change the way you teach, too.
